Pecuniary Consequential Damages
You can recover expenses that you incurred as a result of the discrimination. For instance, if you lost your health care as a result of losing your job and then racked up a bunch of medical bills, you can recover the amount of those bills. If you lost your house and had to move, you could recover, for instance, moving expenses. Note that these are expenses that you can document with receipts, etc. What consequential damages have you experienced (if any)?

How big is your employer?
You can cover for emotional distress in employment law cases. Which of the following best describes the emotional distress you experienced. It doesn’t need to be an exact match. Just get a close as you can.
Not much. I would have preferred to have not gotten fired. But truth be told, I hated the place and don’t miss my job a bit.
Some. What happened was very upsetting to me, and I experienced some sleepless nights.
Significant. What happened to me was one of the worst events of my life. I experienced significant sleep disruption. I cried often and felt depressed. My family and friends noticed and expressed concern for me. I experienced other physical problems like loss of appetite and weight loss. I discussed these problems with my doctor and/or went to see a therapist about the distress.
Debilitating. My life has been ruined by what happened to me. I am a physical wreck. I don’t sleep and have little appetite. My relationship with friends and family have been severely damaged and in some cases destroyed. I am under medical care for the depression that I now suffer. My psychiatrist has prescribed anti-depressants and other medications. She says my mental health has been severely damaged as a result of what happened to me at work.
Prospective Pecuniary Damages
Do you expect to have out-of-pocket expenses - for instance, long-term medical care - directly resulting from your employer’s actions. And do you anticipate these expenses will continue for more than two years? If so, what is the approximate annual costs. For instance, if you expect to required long-term therapy costing $200 per month, then you would ender $200 x 12 or $2400.
Do you work directly for a governmental agency?
The discrimination against me was really bad. When I told my neighbor about it, she she shook her head and thought it was inexcusable. But my boss is slick. I expect that he’ll have a good story to tell to cover his tracks.
What my company did to me was awful. When I told my neighbor about it, she sat in stunned silence. Yes, my company has a good story to tell for what they did, but I don’t think anyone will buy it.
What my company did to me was unlike anything I have experienced. It was really like something you might see in a movie. It’s made worse by the fact that the company tried to come after ME when I told them what was going on. When I told my neighbor about it, she started to cry. My boss is lying through his teeth about it, and I expect a jury will see right through him. He’s too dumb to keep everything straight.
The treatment I faced from my employer - a huge company - was almost inhuman. I can’t even talk about it without breaking down. The fact that my boss touched me like that and then tried to have me fired when I complained, I just can't believe something like that can happen in this country. I have experienced significant trauma and my doctor can testify to it all. The way they tried to cover it all up would be funny if it weren’t so tragic. I can’t believe that my boss put some of what he was up to in writing.
